Neuroscience, the study of the nervous system, advances the understanding of the biological basis of thought, emotion, and behavior. [+]

Best Part time Bachelors in Neuroscience 2017. To understand the brain is to understand behavior. Neuroscience, the study of the nervous system, advances the understanding of the biological basis of thought, emotion, and behavior. Neuroscience includes the study of brain development, sensation and perception, learning and memory, movement, sleep, stress, aging, neurological and psychiatric disorders, molecules, cells, and genes responsible for nervous system functioning. Neuroscientists use a wide range of tools and approaches to examine molecules, nerve cells, neural networks, brain systems, and behavior. From these studies, they learn how the nervous system develops and functions normally and what goes wrong in neurological disorders. Major Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field that combines biology, psychology and chemistry to investigate how the nervous system generates the complex experience and behavior of humans and other animals while being shaped in turn by the organism’s engagement with the environment. Drawing most heavily on the offerings of its home departments of psychology and biology, but with additional courses in chemistry, mathematics, and computer science, the neuroscience major offers excellent preparation for post-graduate education and careers in the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience. Major requirements The major consists of at least 14 courses, 4 of which must be at the 300-level or above, including the Senior Seminar in Neuroscience. [-]

The Neuroscience Major provides students a comprehensive understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system and brain. The major consists of two degree opportunities with students choosing between the Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroscience and Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience options. [+]

Neuroscience, the interdisciplinary study of the nervous system and brain, is an established area of scientific inquiry and yet an emerging area of intense focus. The UM Neuroscience Major contributes to understanding the cause, treatment and prevention of neurological disorders, traumatic brain injury and mental disorders by educating enthusiastic students from across the state of Montana, the US and the world. The Neuroscience Major provides students a comprehensive understanding of the structure and function of the nervous system and brain. The major consists of two degree opportunities with students choosing between the Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroscience and Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience options. Both options ensure that students receive training in neuroscience techniques and neuroscience research, and scientific writing. The program will prepare UM students to pursue graduate work in neuroscience or careers in medicine, academia, education, research companies, law, science writing, speech pathology, and other disciplines in which scientific knowledge of the brain are key components. The curriculum is broad, comprehensive and interdisciplinary, and will nurture understanding of the nervous system from multiple perspectives and approaches. Courses are taught by faculty in the Division of Biological Sciences, Psychology, Biomedical & Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Health, Economics, Dance, and Literature. Curriculum Options Students must choose between one of two curriculum options: Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroscience, or Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience. Both curricula will provide students with a broad and interdisciplinary knowledge of modern neuroscience, however will allow some specialization based upon student interests and career goals. The Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroscience option will include significantly more depth in psychological aspects of neuroscience with slightly less depth in cell structure/function and chemistry. This option is ideal for students with a strong interest in the biological basis of how people learn and behave, systems-level analysis, and are targeted toward behavioral sciences. The Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience option will provide more depth in how the nervous system functions on the cellular and chemical levels and is ideal for students targeted toward biomolecular research and intervention. Since both options require significant cumulative coursework in psychology, biology and chemistry, it is essential that students entering the major plan their course schedules strategically as early as possible. All students seriously interested in this degree should contact one of the neurosceince advisors to discuss their plans.
